“The Church has been caring carefully for the family of Murad Sami Girgis, on the contrary of what was said by media” Said Father Boktor Nashed, priest of al-Nahda church, al-Amria, Alexandria to Copts United.
He added that the church has assigned attorneys at her own expense and has provided housing for the father and his two sons, pointing out that Metropolitan Pachomius is taking care of them himself. He added that Sammy’s brother had requested a sum of money for renting an apartment, and I asked him for the contract that we can pay the money, but did not bring it, so I refused to pay.
On the other hand, Murad Sami Girgis, the Christian young man accused to be the reason behind events of Sharbat village, al-Nahda church, al-Amria, Alexandria, has refused what had been reported by media about his brother saying that the Church doesn’t care for them.
Murad told Copts United that the church was the first who supported him and his family. It provided his father with an apartment and has been paying its rent, as well as another apartment for him, and another for his married brother, stressing that the church is caring for him and his family financially as well.
